3D Sphere PRO is a versatile plugin for Adobe Photoshop that generates 3D spheres. 3D Sphere PRO boasts a feature-rich tool set including texture mapping, procedural mapping, light position & intensity, specular lighting, transparency and much, much more.
3D Sphere PRO provides artists with the capability to generate fully texture mapped spheres quickly and easily without any prior 3D software experience. The spheres can be customized in virtually every possible way and rendered using blazing-fast algorithms that can generate a 2K sphere in under a second. Texture mapping is easily applied with a simple click of a button and light position can be interactively set by clicking directly in the viewport. 3D Sphere PRO comes with a preset of 40 procedural maps that can be customized on-the-fly. Adjust the placement of your texture with powerful UV tools including scale, offset, rotation, tile and flip.
Control the sphere's glossiness using specularity size and intensity, tint your sphere for accurate compositional integration or adjust the ambient lighting to match your composite's gamma.
3D Sphere PRO provides a host of transparency controls allowing the artist to use an image or procedural texture to control the sphere's transparency. All these tools can be used in combination with one another to yield limitless creative results.
3D Sphere Pro is 100% multi-threaded capable of using an unlimited number of cores for ultimate speed.
